Poo-predicting wearable lets you know when you need to go

D-free

There's officially a wearable for everything: A startup is working on a new wearable that notifies users minutes before they need to use the restroom.

The device, called D Free, is being marketed as a medical device for individuals with disabilities or other medical conditions. It's the project of Triple W, which will soon be launching an Indiegogo campaign to raise money to launch the device.

Details are still scarce, but according to a promotional video, the wearable will be able to detect "activity in your intestines" — at which point an accompanying app will send you a push notification providing an approximate window of time that lets you know how much time you have to find a restroom.

The rectangular device appears to be about the size of a business card and is worn over the abdomen, though it's not clear from the video how users keep it in place.

The device tracks your, err, activity, over time; it will eventually learn more about your habits to provide more tailored notifications, according to the company. "You'll no longer feel stressed about unpredictable bowel movements," the video reassures you.

The whole thing may sound like a joke, but Triple W notes that it's aiming to solve a very real issue for many who are elderly, disabled or need "ample time" to prepare for bathroom breaks.

The Indiegogo launch date is unclear, but according to one report, the company is eyeing May, with hopes of making the device available by the end of the year.
